Sensational Director Shankar is teaming up with Superstar Rajinikanth once again for 2.0, the Second Part of the Blockbuster, Robot. He brought down Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar as the baddie for the movie and has invested as much as 500 Crore on the Project. Let us see how 2.0 is received by the audience:
Rajinikanth should be appreciated for attempting a role with lot of action and dance steps. It is not easy to play such role at this age. Some of the sequences were completed with a dupe for obvious reasons. It is difficult to find who is the Real Rajinikanth and who is the VFX Rajinikanth at many places. It is also the case with Akshay Kumar. We only get to see him in the Bird Man Getup. Except for Amy Jackson, there are no more known faces. The film mostly revolves between Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s Combat and so there is not much need for other actors.
The first half of the film is more about the disappearance of Cell Phones and the destruction by Bird Man. The Interval Bang shows Akshay Kumar as Bird Man. The Second Half is more about the confrontation between Chitti and the Bird Man. The episode revealing the reason behind the resurrection of Bird Man is very emotional. The VFX goes to the next level in the Climax. Even though the emotions are not as effective as Robot, Shankar still binds audience with the VFX Marvel. All in all, 2.0 lives up to the hype and expectations
